WCMS Piano Evaluations are a springtime performance opportunity for dedicated students of WCMS faculty. They are only open to students of WCMS teachers by recommendation.

How do they work?

Students prepare a program to perform for a panel of two teaching artists and receive detailed, constructive feedback. The student’s teacher determines the repertoire and scale requirements for their evaluation. These evaluations are designed to encourage growth and artistic expression for students of all ages.


  • Registration is required to reserve a spot. Program repertoire is not required for registration, and can be determined by the teacher in the spring.
    • December 22:  Registration deadline for priority scheduling. If space is limited, students who register before Dec. 22 will be assured a performance time. Be sure to reserve all possible times on your calendar until you have been assigned a performance time on February 11.
    • February 5:  Final registration deadline.  Registration is now closed; the event is full. No schedule change requests or refunds will be permitted after February 5.
  • Fee: $60

What to perform:

  • Prepare a program of two pieces and two scales. Student’s teacher will determine repertoire, scale parameters (choice of keys and number of octaves), and memorization requirement. Maximum length = 15 minutes. If the program is longer, the teaching artists will shorten the program by hearing excerpts of the prepared material.

What to expect:

  • Evaluations are private. Parents, other students, and teachers wait outside the evaluation room during the performance.
  • Teaching artists do not teach during the performances. Feedback is provided through the evaluation form.
  • Students participate anonymously. Teaching artists do not know the student’s name or teacher.
  • All participants and families will follow WCMS COVID safety protocols
  • Performances will be in-person. No online streaming or pre-recorded options will be offered, barring a pandemic-related change in the interests of public health/safety.
